RHS Headed to Holocaust Museum

RHS junior Myrsha Frejuste speaking with Holocaust survivor Fred Heyman during last year's trip to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.

RAHWAY, NJ - Rahway High School students will board a bus to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, December 13, and spend the day at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The trip is run by Ms. Debra Maller, an English teacher at the high school who teaches a course on the Holocaust and other genocides. For the past few years, the trip has been partially funded by the Morris Rubell Holocaust Remembrance Journeys, a non-profit organization that supports Holocaust education and encourages schools to visit the museum. The organization is run by Michael Rubell's father, Morris, was a Holocaust survivor from Poland who died in 1995.

History teacher Mr. David Brighouse will be chaperoning the trip with Ms. Maller. Mr. Brighouse said he is excited about it because “it’s an amazing educational and emotional experience.”  He went on to say, “Last year was my first time visiting the museum. It was very moving, emotional and informative. I’m thrilled that Ms. Maller is giving me the opportunity to attend the trip again and has allowed me to invite a few of my students who I thought would benefit from the experience.”

Following Tuesday’s trip, Rho Eta Sigma will report back on the event and provide some details and especially student thoughts and responses on their time in Washington and at the museum.  Stay tuned for this in the upcoming weeks.
